SOUL MINING. Posted on July 18, 2020 July 18, 2020. July is Soul Mining month. Following the success of the Infected listening party, Matt is participating in a second Twitter Listening Party with Tim Burgess, this time for Soul Mining. To coincide with this event, we have produced an A2 giclée print with the re-working by Andy Dog of the iconic artwork he created for his brothers seminal album, Soul Mining. Printed in vibrant colours on heavyweight 315gsm, soft-textured, 100 cotton, archive-quality white paper with the classic THE THE logo hand-embossed into the top left hand corner.

Soul Mining was Matt Johnson's second album his first, Burning Blue Soul, was released in 1981 as Matt Johnson, though reissues have tended to use The The. It was released in 1983 and included the UK hit singles Uncertain Smile which had reached No. 68 in December 1982 and Perfect which made No. 71 in September 1983 with David Johanson of the New York Dolls playing harmonica. The album version of Uncertain Smile featured the piano playing of Jools Holland. Jools revealed in his 2007 biography it is in fact two separate solos joined together. The origi.

Johnson was only 22 when Soul Mining was released
